Things To Do

The Wedding Website of LAINA PROCEVIAT and SHAWN ROONEY
Over the years we have ventured up to wine country as often as possible, and along the way we have found quite a few favorite places. Napa can be overwhelming with seemingly endless food and wine options, so we wanted to give you a solid starting point. We hope that you enjoy our tried and true spots as much as we do! And if you visit any of these, we want to hear about it!
Rookies Sports Lodge

Rookies Sports Lodge

1535 Meridian Avenue, San Jose, CA 95125
, 408.445.2121

Rookies isn't in wine country, but we wouldn't be here without this place so it deserves the top spot on this list. Most of our first dates were at Rookies, and now we have a standing Wednesday night date every week...and you can also find us there some Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and football Sundays...but who's counting? If you are in Willow Glen, stop in and check it out for yourself. And on the off chance we're not there to greet you, you can see our mugs hanging on the ceiling, #34 and #20.

Clif Family Winery

Clif Family Winery

709 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574
, 707.968.0625

We are members here and absolutely love it! They have a casual tasting room directly next door to our wedding venue. They do tastings by appointment, and they have incredible food pairings made in house. And, if you're looking for a quick bite, they have a great bruschetteria food truck parked outside the tasting room that features seasonal ingredients from the Clif Family Farm! We went to a wine club event here right after we got engaged, and we actually met the owner of Tre Posti while doing a tasting and that is the reason we ended up choosing our venue!

HALL Wines St. Helena

HALL Wines St. Helena

401 Saint Helena Highway, St. Helena, CA 94574
, 707-967-2626

We are members at Walt, the sister winery, but honestly we visit Hall St Helena more. Really delicious cabs!

Napkins Bar & Grill

Napkins Bar & Grill

1001 2nd Street, Napa, CA 94559

This is where we met! We wouldn't necessarily recommend you go inside...but it is a fun landmark to point out in downtown Napa!

Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch

Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch

738 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574
, (707) 963-4555

One of our favorite restaurants! We went here on our first trip to Napa together and it has been a staple ever since. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the steak tartare is a non negotiable along with their seasonal beet or peach salads.

The Charter Oak Restaurant

The Charter Oak Restaurant

1050 Charter Oak Avenue, St. Helena, CA 94574
, (707) 302-6996

Great dinner spot in town. Known for hearth cooked dishes, and the burger comes highly recommended. Sit outside in the courtyard, it's gorgeous! And hot tip: they offer free corkage on your first bottle of wine!

Brasswood Bar + Kitchen

3111 Saint Helena Highway, St. Helena, CA 94574
, (707) 302-5101

We ate here the night before our engagement photos and absolutely loved it! We recommend getting the hand pulled mozzarella appetizer, it is is off-menu, made in house, and honestly just incredible. We also recommend the brussel sprout salad...but we could have ordered everything on the menu it looked so good.

Charlie's Napa Valley

Charlie's Napa Valley

1327 Railroad Avenue, St. Helena, CA 94574
, 7078043099

A family-run, community focused restaurant in downtown St Helena. Great happy hour, dinner, and late night happy hour menus! Perfect place to sit at the bar and enjoy a meal or a cocktail. The chef and owner, Elliot Bell, most recently served as the Executive Sous Chef at Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, where he spent the past decade of his career. Prior to that, he worked in Boston, Seattle, and New York at several notable restaurants, including Danny Meyer’s Gramercy Tavern.

We feel confident in saying that these are the best English muffins in the world. If you're staying at Southbridge they are available to order with your complimentary breakfast, if not it is worth it to walk downtown and get one. Trust us!

Market

Market

1347 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574

Oxbow Public Market

610 1st Street, Napa, CA 94559
, (707) 226-6529

We try to stop here at least once every time we're in wine country. We love the spice shop, the grocery, and most importantly Hog Island Oyster Co. This has become a non negotiable. Sit at the bar, order a glass of Hog Island Oyster wine, a bowl of the freshest clam chowder there is, and watch them shuck your oysters. The dream!

WALT Wines

WALT Wines

605 1st Street, Napa, CA 94558

A real hidden gem. While this winery doesn't offer killer views or a luxe tasting room, it does offer five single vineyard cabernet sauvignons so delicious that they make it worthy of a spot on your itinerary.

Rutherford Grill

Same great ambiance you will find at RH Restaurant, but scaled down to wine, champagne, and grazing boards. A great pre dinner stop!

Freemark Abbey Winery

Freemark Abbey Winery

3022 Saint Helena Highway, St. Helena, CA 94574
, 800-963-9698

Beautiful winery a few minutes from downtown St Helena. We visited the first year we were dating, and Shawn really liked the a wine called The Josephine. He decided to buy a bottle, but didn't know the price until we got to the register. It was more expensive than we anticipated, but he felt it was too late to back out. So, we decided to hold onto it and open it when we got engaged. It made for a very special dinner at home to celebrate our engagement!

Miner Family Winery

Miner Family Winery

7850 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558
, (707) 944-9500

Tasty wines and a nice tasting room with gorgeous vineyard views! Fun fact: They have a partnership with Riedel, so they have a great selection of wine glasses for purchase at the tasting room. The stemless glasses we use at home were purchased here!

1160 Oak Knoll Avenue, Napa, CA 94558

Scala Osteria & Bar

Scala Osteria & Bar

1141 1st Street, Napa, CA 94559
, 7076374380

Our friends introduced this restaurant to us and it is a hit! Scala is a sister restaurant of Bistro Don Giovanni, located in the heart of downtown Napa. Although it offers a seafood-centric menu, the real star of the show is the pork chop. It’s massive, and can absolutely feed two! We also loved the warm octopus salad and the bourbon & the bees cocktail. Make a reservation, it’s always packed!

Everything was fantastic and we can’t wait to go back and try their other dishes! $25 corkage if you bring a bottle!

Bistro Jeanty

Bistro Jeanty

6510 Washington Street, Yountville, CA 94599
, 707-944-0103

Cute French bistro in Yountville. Shawn isn't a fan of French food, but he can't deny that the tomato soup en croute, steak tartare, and filet au poivre are really delicious.
